Spotify denies rejection
In response to a number of rumors allegedly originating with Swedish news outlets, Spotify has denied that its iPhone app has been rejected from the App Store, according to Macworld.co.uk. Separate rumors suggest the app did receive approval, although the developer has clarified that Apple has not yet responded with an official decision in either direction.
"Twitter, right? We've also been reading Tweets claiming the exact opposite. Absolutely nothing in it - we've still to hear back from Apple," the company said "We ran over some technical questions with them the other week but that's as far as it's gone. We're as eager to hear back as you are!"
Spotify provides a streaming music service that enables paid subscribers to stream content from a desktop system. The software also allows users to temporarily store a playlist for offline listening.
If the app receives approval, it will be available on the App Store for free. Users must have a premium subscription which is available for ú10 in the UK. The company is also working on an American version that it intends to release before the end of the year.
